I love how MSNBC.com's new slogan is "A Fuller Spectrum of News," complete with online ads featuring brilliant rainbows, and yet their entire site design is plain white except for one strip of blue across the top. (link) If I didn't give up reading it years ago because the entertainment section is spoiler city, I'd give it up today because I can't stand to look at it.

What the hell is UP with spoilers these days? No one can keep their mouths shut. I'd already seen the episode by the time I read an article about the Sopranos coming back in TIME (it was 3 weeks old, I believe), but they quoted like 5 different things from the episode! And told plot points! TIME magazine!

I was appalled. Shut UP people! Can't you write an article without quoting things? Sounds like they're still stuck in 5th grade.

(Thanks for suggesting it, Joandy!) Go »

Hanlon's Razor states:Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.That's cute, but aren't we all just a little quick to assume either explanation? Nobody trusts anybody else's judgment any more. Go »

Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Facial Reconstructive Surgery

When Roger Ebert took ill last fall, I thought it would pass in a week like his previous cancer scares, and he'd barely mention it. Then he didn't come back to work for months, and I thought he'd announce his retirement, because it's really hard to go back to doing something full-time when you've rested too long, even if you love it like he does. Then he announced that he'd be present at his annual film festival this month, and I thought the recovery was done and he was about to return. Go »
